Photography became part of my life 8 years ago, both as a hobby and as a professional activity. At the time, I was working for one of the largest IT companies in Europe, and had a daily opportunity to practice my photography skills, shooting portraits of top managers and rank-and-file employees, photo reports and staged photos, field and studio photos, photos for posters and advertising campaigns, etc.
Practical experience, by the way, is not the only thing behind my expertise. Photography school, online course, and workshop certificates prove my solid theoretical background. As my family moved to the United States, I seized the opportunity to make photography my main occupation. And though I still enjoy designer work, copywriting or social media marketing projects, I take photography as the number one priority in my professional life.
